The shadows of noon roll over
me like a tidal wave, you by my side
breathing in the scents of sleep,
while I inhale the last scents of love
emanating from your pores like
steam from a lava field-
farewell, my starlit night,
your skin like velvet against my palm,
eyes like a birdsong on an April morning,
your breath a melody more beautiful than
a symphony of strings…
my skin against yours more fragrant than
a thousand raindrops after the storm-
farewell, my starlit night*
